I really was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this course. I selected it because it is a topic we should review every few years, I did not expect to enjoy it and feel like I have a handy reference guide to go to with the charts in the course material. Excellent!

Having worked in an institution for over 30 years, I found this course to be in-line with required information to work in this setting. An excellent job by Ms. Burch in developing and presenting the material in a manner that was easy to understand and incorporate into practice. Well done!
- Joseph Pipkin, LMBT
I loved this course! It was a good refresher course for how diseases are spread, but what I found fascinating in the chapter on "Specific Communicable Disease". The visuals in the hand washing protocol are excellent. It was very helpful to learn the "Therapeutic Actions" that I can apply to my practice. Also the "Recommended Resources for Further Study" at the end are excellent sources to expand on the subject matter.
